Speaker Ram Niwas Goel ordered the marshalls to remove O P Sharma from the House when the BJP legislator criticised him. The comments made by Sharma were expunged from the records.

Earlier, Sharma attacked AAP MLA Alka Lamba for accusing Centre and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung of trying to take away powers of the Delhi government. The two-day special Session of the Assembly has been called to deliberate on the notification issued by the Union Home Ministry last week.

AAP government moved a resolution at a Special Session of the Delhi Assembly against the Centre's notification giving absolute powers to the Lt Governor on transfer and postings of senior bureaucrats and restricting the Anti-Corruption Bureau from probing central government employees.
Moving the resolution, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said issuance of the notification was an "insult" to the "biggest mandate" the people of Delhi had given in the Assembly polls.
